Dundee Fire Department receives $73,150 from Grant

January 28, 2015

The Dundee Fire Department received a grant that will cover replacement costs of their 14 SCBA’s (air packs). The total cost of the project is $77,000 of which the Federal Grant share of 95% is $73,150 and the Town’s share of 5% is $3,850.  The new SCBA’s will be an upgrade from the current equipment utilized by the Department.  Mask microphones, lighter air tanks and a heads-up display (HUD) to show tank air levels are just a few of the attributes of the new SCBA’s.  Congratulations to the Fire Department for receiving alternative funding that improves firefighter safety in their service to the citizens of Dundee.
